How will this money be used by ASABE?

The proceeds from the ASABE Sweetpotato fundraiser will be used for expenses related to sending members to the Southeast Regional ASABE Rally at the University of Florida this upcoming spring. The money also allows us to fund travel to different company tours for our students to see real-world applications of concepts we learn in class. Additionally, some of the funding will help purchase supplies for local volunteer efforts.


Note on the spelling of ‘sweetpotato’ from the NC Sweetpotato Commission:

“The North Carolina SweetPotato Commission deliberately spells sweetpotato as one word unless directly quoting a source where it is spelled as two words i.e., sweet potato). The one-word spelling was officially adopted by the National Sweetpotato Collaborators in 1989. Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) must not be confused in the minds of shippers, distributors, warehouse workers, and above all consumers with the equally unique and distinctive potato (Solanum tuberosum) or the yam (Dioscorea sp.) which are also grown and marketed commercially in the United States. Please join us in using the scientific one-word spelling of our state vegetable, the North Carolina Sweetpotato!”
